Under 16 Kynog United V Monasterevin

Both teams deserve great credit for their efforts on a very warm morning in Kynog Park. Time and space were at a premium as both teams looked to gain control in midfield in the early stages. The home team opened the scoring after 17 minutes following a short corner which Ciaron Baselmans crossed for Donal McGrath to slot home beyond Declan Donoghue. The visitors responded and were unlucky to see an effort come back off the crossbar. Kynog doubled their advantage when a Shane Merriman pass found Jimmy Lewis who rounded the goalkeeper to score. To their credit Monasterevin deservedly reduced the arrears on 34 minutes when Daniel Dee beat a couple of defenders before shooting past the advancing  Ross Maher. Half time arrived with no further score. The second half saw Monasterevin on top  in the opening minutes and Joe Sharpe equalised in the 52nd minute. The away team were being well served by Conor Hennessy. The winning goal followed a fine individual run and finish by Daniel Dee. Kynog pressed for an equaliser and went close when Jimmy Lewis shot narrowly wide. A lot of positives for both teams could be taken from the game.
